The one where I bitch a lot...

Last Saturday I woke up with the norovirus, which if you don't know is like the world's worst stomach bug times 10000. I blacked out several times. Fun stuff.

By the end of the weekend everyone, but hubby (thank God), had it. As soon as the kids were over the tummy issues, they all developed a terrible chest cold. Even more fun. I was fine after, whoo hoo! But then the chest cold hit me on Thursday. I have no voice what so ever and can't breathe.

This school year has been nightmare sickness after sickness. We haven't been lucky enough to get plain old colds. NO, we have to get swine flu and norovirus. I am over it.

I am declaring war on germs. I normally don't like the use of hand sanitizer, but I just bought a shit ton of it. I am going to strip my house and clean the whole damn thing, you know once I can move without coughing up a lung.

Spring cleaning is going to be in full effect.

Sounds like our year last year. We did buy an air cleaner machine- that said on the box- kills viruses- we have been sick now and then, but NOTHING like in the past.

Jenni, when I talked to you last night on FB, I wanted to mention that to you, but didn't want it to come off like, "Hey, clean your pigsty!" LOL...I would suggest also getting the boys outside, and bleaching your walls. If there is any mold on them, that will take care of business. I will do that every now and then, especially in the bathroom.
Trust me, I have three kids and my house is not as clean as I'd like, so I'm totally not judging. So before it get to be 102 outside, open up those windows, clean those walls and sanitize everything! It will make you feel better, too.

Sarah I bleach the entire bathroom once a week, with boys there is no choice. I have had the windows open all week (when it wasnt raining). Damn kids keep bringing how germs from school.

Oh my God. I'm horrified. You all have paid your illness dues for the next DECADE. :( I hope you feel better really soon and that the yucky bugs STAY AWAY!

I figured you did, Jenni. Gosh I need to bleach mine every week, lol.
I just stepped in something sticky in the kitchen. I'm afraid to see what it is...
